by germany's decision, particularly last week, at the united nations to abstain on that vote on upgrading the unstatus of the palestinians. israel believes that that change in status will make the palestinians less willing to make compromises, and prime minister netanyahu expressed his disappointment on that front again. although he said he did not question germany's motives, he said of course germany thought that its decision to abstain would be more likely to lead to peace. another problem is the question of settlements. i think the german government's criticism of israeli settlements reflects a growing frustration in the german public about israel's position, but as prime minister netanyahu also said, in the end, peace will not be made in germany or in new york but on the ground in direct talks between the two sides. >> thanks very much for joining us. >> berlin says it is authorizing the deployment of 400 troops to help station patriot missiles on turkey's border with syria. the move is a sign of solidarity with turkey, also a nato member. >> dutch and american soldiers will also be e

at the united nations this afternoon. it seems there is a battle for a capital city that could be shaping up and that is crucially important. >>jonathan: yes. there is no doubt we have entered a new and very significant stage in the battle for syria and that is in essence of battle for the capital of damascus which has been going on for five or six days. president bashar al-assad wants do and indeed has to hang on to the capital if he is to stay in power. there are many experts who believe either way, he has decided to fight to the death. either if he tries to flow he will be killed by his own supporters who will feel betrayed him him or ultimately he will be killed by the rebels. this, while it does seem to be the end days for the bashar al-assad regime, it could yet stretch on for some days or even weeks. that because the rebels simply are not strong enough to defeat the syrian security forces in one battle. what we are seeing is an intense battle of attrition. most experts will tell you, his days are numbered. >> the big question on the international stage now, jonathan, will he use the c
